Patient : How can I tell whether my foot is sprained or broken? I bent my toes under two days ago while moving furniture, and it's still slightly swollen and more painful today, and walking is difficult. There is no bruising thus far. I don't have insurance, so going to the hospital is out of the question. Is there any difference in care procedure for a break vs a sprain?
